Hebrew Fundamentals: The Participle
Dr. Russell T. Fuller
Mastering the fundamentals is essential for any field of study or pursuit. What are the fundamentals for the Biblical Hebrew participle? A participle is a verbal adjective, but is that the full definition of a participle? Should it be classified as a verbal form, a nominal form, or an adjectival form (or a combination of (some) these)? What are its usages in Biblical Hebrew? How does it compare and contrast with English and Greek participles? When a form can be parsed as a verb or participle, how can one decide? These and other questions will be approached from a traditional Semitic perspective.
Do We Really Have Peace with God? A Reexamination of Romans 5:1
Dr. Daniel B. Wallace
There’s an interesting textual variant in Romans 5:1. Does the text read “We have peace with God” or “Let us have peace with God”? Join textual criticism expert Dr. Dan Wallace as he describes how the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts is discovering new evidence for answering exegetical questions such as this.
